The worst part is, he’s said to be ‘still growing’.

World’s tallest man is a 8’4″ Ukrainian veterinarian. He’d 33, 440 pounds, but  looks like a man of average build — just scaled up by about 33%.

‘While Jesus was appallingly lax in neglecting to mention His disgust with homosexuality, He did take Republicans (for some reason, called Pharisees back then) to task for being hypocrites’

Betty Bowers of Landover Baptist takes on the Ted Haggard sex scandal. If “the only difference between [Haggard] and George Bush is that Bush drives a Ford and [Haggard] drive[s] a Chevy”…  well, never mind, I don’t want to know.

Gone Daddy Gone by Gnarls Barkley. Clever video!

‘I am X, and I approve this message.’

Political ads in 2006, according to Mark Fiore. You have to admit, he’s got a point.

“From you, all right? I learned it by watching you!”

The US government deliberately publicly posted documents showing how to make a nuclear device. So, if Iran does come up with the bomb, it’s most likely to be based on the information contained in those documents. In the 1980s the US and other countries sold Saddam the means to build the WMDs it later used to justify invading Iraq, and it looks like the same scenario is in place for Iran now. It really is starting to look like the USA is the biggest threat to world peace and security.

Against all odds Microsoft starts listening to its customers.

Windows backs down on draconian new Vista transfer limitations. I think this might be related to a few stories floating about stating that nearly 30% of tech-savvy XP users would consider switching to Linux instead of Vista as XP support for new features begins to fade, largely due to Vista’s very stringent license limitations. Mind you, there are still plenty of excellent reasons to switch to Linux, make no mistake about that.

Reason is Treason by Kasabian. I love the video for this one.

‘Not everyone appearing in this column is a deranged cross-dressing sociopath. Let me know if you find one and I’ll strangle him with my bra. Man, 56.’

Eccentric singles ads from the London Review of Books. Some of these are quite witty!
